Services for Real Estate Pros with Real Estate Professionals


If you have opened your mail recently, you may have found out you ive in one of the few of the local 20 governements whose property taxes went up.

According in a recent article in the Salt Lake City Trib, the Mayor said, "We have not raised our taxes since the 1980s," explaining the proposed doubling there this year. "We try to treat our citizens well, and it [not boosting taxes] has come back to haunt us. We just can’t sustain it any longer, and perhaps we should have done it [raise taxes] in a different manner with increments."



He said the proposed increase is needed to handle needed road maintenance, water system costs and a new fire station. "We have to catch up to do our roads and pay our bills," he said.


But what does this mean for you? Here is a breakdown based on a $200,000:



Manila: 119 percent increase, up $88.


Harrisville: 103 percent increase, up $83.49.


Salt Lake City Suburban Sanitary District No. 1: 90 percent increase, up $20.35.


Uintah City: 76 percent increase, up $61.49.


Highland, 58 percent increase, up $127.82.
